It's no surprise that I've once again used those addictive Distress Oxide inks. I took an afternoon last week and created several different backgrounds so I'd have some ready to use at a moment's notice. This is one. I love the way those colors blended so well together. With trees being a favorite of mine, I had to use a long neglected stamp set called Build A Tree by from Fiskars. It has all the different little images for the four seasons so you just might see more of it in the future.
For this one, I decided not to make a card but put it in a frame. I love the way it looks with the silver of the frame. Now do I want to keep it for my desk or gift it to someone. Decisions, decisions!

Thanks for stopping in at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,
Beautiful Marsha, love the pretty oxide background colors...yes this time it was an easy make for us at The Sisterhood and fun to see all the different creations!ReplyDelete
What a beautiful framed masterpiece Marsha! Great job on the oxide background! I too am addicted to these new inks! LOLReplyDelete
Thanks, Darlene. I can't get enough of them.Delete
Wow Marsha, what a beautiful scene you created with those inks! It rightly belongs in a frame.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous, Marsha! I learned a lot from your beautiful creation - one of which is that Fiskars makes stamps?!? I had no idea! Lovely combination of colors. I am weakening on the DOx inks!! (And I vote that you keep your wonderful framed artwork!)ReplyDelete
Thanks, Debbie! You'll love the oxide inks once you try them. I attended a class that featured the inks and that's when I decided I had to have a set of my own.Delete
The background is gorgeous!!! ANd the scene you created with it is lovely.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous project, Marsha. The silver frame really makes the scene stand out. Love the look of the oxide inks. Haven't tried them yet. Will have to add them to my list of projects to try.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Terri! Once you try them, you will love them. They are different from any other inks I've used.Delete
Love that you decided to frame this. The silver frame makes the image pop. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks, Heather, for your kind comment. It just didn't look right as a card so I framed it.Delete
